Land on Highway 19A has been cleared for a single family residential subdivision.

Land cleared for 20 lots in Parksville

The land is across the street from the Wembley Place small-lot subdivision and kitty corner to Wembley Mall

Land has been cleared for a low density residential subdivision at the corner of Stanhope Road and Highway 19A.

Parksville Manager of Current Planning Keeva Kehler said the property owner is actually only subdividing into 20 larger than average lots on land that is zoned for high density multi-family.

The land is across the street from the Wembley Place, small lot subdivision and kitty corner to Wembley Mall.

The lots will average 620 sq.m compared to the minimum 560 sq.m the current RS1 zoning would allow so no rezoning or council approval is required. She said staff has approved the subdivision application and they had a tree removal permit for the land clearing done last week.
